Summary

President Joe Biden in a Tuesday speech in Atlanta, Georgia, put out his most forceful call yet for federal action on voting rights and endorsed changes to the Senate's rules to pass such legislation.Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris visited Atlanta at a crucial inflection point for congressional Democrats' efforts to pass voting rights and democracy reform legislation while they still control both chambers of Congress."Voting is a threshold liberty," Biden said. The law, SB 202, expanded early voting in most counties but tightened access to absentee voting, reduced the window for voters to register and vote early before runoff elections, and put new restrictions on local election officials, including limiting the number of ballot drop boxes they can offer and prohibiting them from accepting private grant money.Biden criticized the bill in his speech, arguing it would lead to "chaos and subversion."     With Biden's economic agenda indefinitely stalled in Congress, Senate Democrats have turned their focus to reforming the rules of the Senate in order to pass voting rights legislation. Senate Republicans filibustered three major voting rights and democracy reform bills in 2021."I've been having these quiet conversations with members of Congress for two months," Biden said.
